    Wow this is great, really loving the synth work and horns, but tbh the vocals are taking away from the other bits I like.
    Amazing work either way, reminds me of something that would be pushed by Project Mooncircle

    Thank you :). I feel once i properly mix it, the vocals wont over power the track as it does.

    Really liking this, top work. It does sound a little hollow, like it needs a few more layers of atmospehere to me. Might be the style your after though.

    Also might be intentional but i'm hearing quite a few pops and clicks that sounds a little distracting. The clicky sample at 1:30. The synth around 0:54 also sounds quite glitchy and i'd tweak the attack ever so slightly.

    Doesn't take away from a beautiful arrangement though. Would like to hear more than 2 minutes if you have a longer version.

    hi terrell, very creative and interesting track from you again, nice! i think the drums sound a bit too prominent on my system, your other tunes seem better in the master/mix. looking forward to your next tunes, dude! :)

    Thanx man :) yeah I really wanted to beat to hit hard. as round pointed and other have in the past that the track seems a hollow so perhaps I can go back and play a bit more and keep working on the mix overall.

    Deffinitely getting a Stray vibe from this one.

    This is such a gorgeously made tune. Love the drums they are so clean and interesting to the ear. Levels overall sound good to me.

    That sax is right up my street! I do think the Rhode sample used might be a little too subby and there's not enough of the mid end too it.

    Overall though this is a really interesting track, great work!

    If you could feedback me too dude that would be great! https://dnbforum.com/threads/james-detached-distrust-wip-feedback-appreciated.194193/
